But instead it looked like this
Since Friday was a PD Day for Noah I decided to bump it back a day rather than leave him home alone for an hour and a half. I was all ready for my long run on Saturday morning but Mother Nature had different plans. It pissed down with rain for the entire morning and a good chunk of the afternoon. I hate to run in the rain at the best of times, and to do it for 90 or so minutes just isn't going to happen. So I figured that I would just do it once the rain ended in the afternoon. Yeah. Right. I'm not sure who I thought that I was kidding with that plan. The reason that pretty much all of my runs are done first thing in the morning is for one reason. I. Am. Lazy. Very lazy. One of the reasons that I got a dog four years ago (other than the fact that I love dogs and their unconditional love) was because I would have to walk him twice a day therefore forcing me to exercise. I run first thing in the morning because the only real reason that I can come up with not to run is that I want to sleep longer. Usually I can beat back that excuse alright, but in the afternoon or evening there are 5000 other excuses that I can draw upon to not do something. That is exactly what happened on Saturday. I had to take Kyle out to practice his driving (G2 test coming up Wednesday - Lord help us!). I had to walk the dog. I had to paint my toenails. I had to watch both episodes of last weeks Hell's Kitchen. I had to do pretty much everything but run in the stinky heat. Boo on me. Thankfully it's only the beginning of the plan so it shouldn't hurt me too much. And doubly thankfully there is no rain forecast for this weekend!
Noah won two fourth place ribbons in the finals at track on Thursday! One in the grade 7 boys 100m and one in the grade 7 boys relay (he was the anchor).
I got this water bottle in my race kit for the Toronto Women's Half the other week and finally tried it out at work today.
|This is my desk at work. I don't have wood panelling at home! LOL|
I've seen them sold at Longo's for $10. What a waste. This was weird to drink from (I had to suck on air half the time before I got any water) and then when it was almost empty it folded over and spilled water on me. LOL If you've seen these water bottles and have been curious, take it from me. Don't bother! :o)
